My depression and anxiety are starting to get to me, but I really do not want to take anything. I have done some research and spoke to the doctor about some things that I can do naturally. If these things do not work I will consider medicine. Here are a few things that I am trying to help.
Coffee- I love coffee, hot or cold, morning or night, winter or summer! I try to drink decaffeinated, even when I am not pregnant/nursing. While you are pregnant a cup or two will not hurt the baby. I have found through some research that it can help.
Folic Acid- I am going to be taking some extra folic acid. This is not a bad idea while you are pregnant anyways, but it can help with depression.
Tea- I am ordering Mama's Red Raspberry Tea from the Bulk Herb Store. I will be drinking a glass at night to hopefully help me calm and unwind from the day.
Omega-3- Another good thing to take while pregnant anyways, but can also aide in natural remedies for depression.
I will let you know if these things help.
